We've used HGG products in all our gym programs this season. From the Tib Bar to the Nordic Bar, they've been a staple in helping bulletproof our players against the figures of an NRL season.
I am a 74 year old Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner, and a former Masters BJJ world champion. I am now doing full nordic curls after using the Nordic Bar for three months. Great product! Great service!
This is a must have piece of equipment. Space saver and targets those hamstrings big time. Easy to add regression and variations for all ages and abilities.
GET TO KNOW THE NORDIC BAR™
The solution to performing Nordic Curls anywhere and bulletproofing your hamstrings!
WHAT IS THE NORDIC BAR™?
Designed and built by us here at HGG Performance®, the Nordic Bar™ is used for Nordic hamstring exercises and holds the ankles in place while kneeling on the ground (or a padded bench for comfort), and leaning forward from the knee to extend the hamstring muscles.
The adjustable Nordic Bar™ easily fastens on to any frame, gym bar, post or immovable solid object measuring up to 90mm in width.
The Nordic Bar™ has been developed with comfort, function and style in mind. Our Nordic Bar™ includes a larger 8mm plate making it extra heavy duty, an anti-slip textured pad for extra stability, and a wider back pad with two of our epic moustache bolts allowing for a bigger bite surface to stop any lateral movement during your exercise.
Easily portable, lightweight and very strong, the Nordic Bar™ is ideal for use in home gyms, commercial gyms and can also be used for outdoor training sessions.
HOW DO I MASTER THE NORDIC HAMSTRING EXERCISE?
The traditional Nordic hamstring exercise can be a difficult exercise to master! But, one of the major benefits of using the Nordic Bar™ attached to a fixed post is that it provides the option to tie a resistance band between your chest and the upright post. This means the exercise can FINALLY be scaled and regressed to a beginner level, allowing the exercise to be performed through full range of motion for multiple reps.
As you get stronger you simply reduce the size of the resistance band. This is something not possible on any other piece of equipment and will ensure your Nordic game levels up FAST.
Want to make it even harder? Try the Nordic deadlift!
HOW WILL THE NORDIC BAR™ HELP ME?
The Nordic Bar increases strength in your hamstrings, quads, calves and glutes, which will help to bulletproof your legs, increase longevity and improve athletic performance.
Strengthening these areas will also assist with the prevention and recovery of knee and hamstring injuries.
The Nordic hamstring exercise has been shown to decrease the risk of hamstring injury by up to 51% (according to a study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine) by increasing eccentric hamstring strength.
Exercising with The Nordic Bar will also help to develop strength for other posterior chain and leg dominant exercises such as deadlifts and squats.
Plus, stretching our your hamstrings will help you to run faster, jump higher and increase explosiveness!
There's also a lot of fun to be had when trying out a new challenge...
Slide the Nordic Bar™ around the post you are wanting to attach it and fasten the two HGG moustache bolts up against the post until the clamping pad is tight and the Nordic Bar™ is securely attached. We recommend kneeling on a padded bench for comfort while doing this exercise.
Ensure you are doing this exercise slowly and controlled. Slide your ankles in around the cushions, then extend the hamstring muscles to lean forward (lean forward from the knees, not the hips) until you come low to the floor, then push yourself back up and repeat.
Work through your exercise reps, it's time to feel the burn! There are a few ways to regress the level of difficulty to help you get started on your journey to bulletproof hamstrings. Check out this video for more exercise ideas on 5 ways to use your Nordic Bar.
